The Dragons Are Singing Tonight (Paperback)

The Dragons Are Singing Tonight Cover Image
By Jack Prelutsky, Peter Sis (Illustrator)
Hard to Find


From beloved children's poet Jack Prelutsky and acclaimed illustrator Peter Sis comes a fierce, fanciful series of poems all about dragons: dragons fierce and dragons friendly; dragons' lairs and dragons' eggs; even a menacing dragon living inside a computer—all spring to life in these enchanting poems and paintings. 

"Prelutsky and Sis bring to life so many sorts of dragons: the large, the small, the ferocious, the technological, the gentle, the ominous, and the disconsolate. There's a `just right' quality to the verse that makes it a pleasure to read the words aloud. Because it appeals on so many levels, this is one poetry book that won't sit on the shelf for long."—Booklist.

This New York Times Notable Book of the Year is a wonderful introduction to the pleasures of poetry and word play from a master of the genre, Jack Prelutsky.
